This brush has a nice, matte black handle, I don't know what material it's made of, as I couldn't find any information about it on Elf's website, but I can assure you that it feels nice to the touch and looks well made! It's neither a long nor a short (travel size) handle, it's somewhere inbetween, which I find really convinient! You can find the name of the brush printed on the handle in white writing, which is great, especially for beginners! ;)
The actual brush is amazing!!! It's made of synthetic hairs (Taklon to be exact) and it's really soft and dense!! When I first got it and washed it no dye came out and it didn't lose any hairs, which was amazing, considering that this is a very dense brush! I didn't notice any nasty smell either! It still doesn't shed, which is great, because I hate picking up hairs off my face, especially when I'm applying foundation!
I mainly use this amazing brush to apply my Revlon Colorstay Foundation, they make such a great combination!! I have quite a few flat top brushes, which I bought to use for foundation application, but I get such great coverage and finish with this brush (and with the Revlon foundation) that I've stopped using the other flat top brushes I got lol ! I've also used this brush to apply mineral foundation, because you get more coverage with flat top brushes that are dense, and it worked great too! So, the Powder Brush is suitable for both dry and wet products!
You can find this must have brush online here, but I haven't told you the best part yet! You know what they say..you get what you pay for... Well, that's definitely not the case, as this brush retails for only £3.50, yet it feels and performs like a high-end one! ;) Definitely check it out, you *have* to have this brush!! Trust me and you won't regret it! ;)
